Over the weekend, I was reading some of the articles about starting up your own development studio, and I got thinking. I wonder why people have a desire to get into this business? I imagine some people think it'd be a really fun, easy job. Of course it isn't, it's hard work just like anything else. But aside from just plain old ignorance of what it takes, why do people get into this business? What makes people want to put in the hard yards?
I think for myself, I look at the (what I feel to be) low quality of games today, I shake my head, sigh, and think "I can so do better than that." And maybe I can. I don't know, I guess I just feel there's not enough really good games out there. I can't tell if it's a feeling of odd nostalgia or what, though. Maybe I just remember games being better when I was younger because I was less jaded at that time.
Still. Why do people want in this industry? Why do you? Maybe I should start a topic on the boards or something. Hmm. More work tomorrow. I'd better start planning things out.
